for companies shipping jobs over seas. they have been used to block common sense and protect families from gun violence, and they prevented far too many americans from serving their country at a time when their country needs their talents the most. it harmed our economy and our democracy, and it brought us to the point where a simple majority vote no longer seems to be sufficient for anything. even routine business, through what is supposed to be the word's greatest deliberative body. i realize that neither party has been blameless for these tactics. they have developed over the years, and it seems as if they have continually escalated. but today's pattern of obstruction just isn't normal. it's not what our founders envisioned. a deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything, no matter what the merits, just to affect the results of an election is not normal. we can't let it become normal for the sake of future generations. so i support the steps that a majority of senators today took to change the way that washington is doing business. more specifically the way that the senate does b

typical enforcement mechanisms that they use like, you know, tax lens and garnishing wages aren't available through them the way aca is written. not only gretchen are they in charge of figuring out what people's penalties are they have to figure out already people are in compliance in the first place, whether or not they need to be penalized, whether or not they are exhe wanted which is the hhs department's purview. so we'll see if they can coordinate properly. there's another element the irs is responsible for which is paying trillions of dollars in subsidies to the insurers. that's their job. as we found out in testimony last week they are way behind in constructing the back end of the website. >> got to get your thoughts on this poll. four out of ten people now americans believe that president obama only four out of ten believe he can manage government effectively coupled with the fact for the first time a majority, 53% believe he's not trustworthy. what do you make of it? >> these are toxic numbers for the white house and for the president and the poll you just cited really

in from lawmakers on both sides of the i'll. mike what can you tell us? >> what are you hearing? >> some democrats say the president's fix doesn't go far enough. they would prefer a two year extension. florida democrat bill nelson is in support of sending this tweet. not cancel policies folks like. it does represent the clearest am knowledge yet. house speaker john boehner says there is no way to fix this. >> so tomorrow the president or the house is going to act on the bill. the keep your health care plan act. the white house says it is looking for adminstrative fix. of course no one can identify anything. the president could do it to keep his pledge that would be legal and effective. >> democrats are meeting this afternoon with representatives from the white house who are trying to reassure their allies up here. earlier house leader nancy pelosi suggested that her voters would like to vote on something. >> think of a belt or suspenders. do any of you wear them? well, [ laughter ] >> well, think of a belt and suspenders. what the president would put forth would be one and what we will d
of the american people who use it. didn't the administration learn from that october 1st hard launch date not to give out hard dates now? >> they said by the end of the month not so much. >> it is a buggy website and an over promise is ridiculous. it is not going to reduce the deficit and help people in these ways that he promised. it is going to get worse. somebody in the white house has figured this out. it is not going to work. just one person? >> maybe one. there are other people that will mouth what the president says. no of the people have got to figure out. we have a bigger problem here and you brought up a good point before. maybe that one person figured it out a while ago. this whole thing would have crashed down if that happened. >> the fix is all the democratic senators are beginning to figure that out. the same day we had sebelius before the senate we had the meeting. i doubt they are confident that this is going to be fixed by the end of november. bill, thank you for your time. >> we want to hear from you. what do you think about the president's qualified poapology. it is my
